Hard to get, you need a lot of r99's to get up to quest n° 50 but thankful to questers this is available for us.
It's a must if you want to get into a HST (Hi-score table) in 1-player battling. Also really useful for high league battling.
The most important thing of this weapon is the multi-healing system, this can make you survive forever in 1-player & make you last more turns in league battling.
Downgrade: This weapon is unique for what it does. It reflects, it blocks, it multi-heal & also it attacks !
So there is no cheaper option.
Alternative: If you want its attack go with Sword of Thare 15 earth + 2-7 physical icons are even more I-staff's attack. If you want the multi-healing go with Everlasting Crystal Apple it heals 30hp every time you use it, it's only useful with low-league pets. Last but not least if you want it's full dark blocking go with Hanso Charisma Charm that also deal 5 light & 5 earth icons.
Upgrade: What? Seriously? Wand of the Dark Faerie is the clear upgrade to this. I know she's Illusens nemesis but well, his wand is better :/ (Don't tell Illusen, please)
- Reflector: Shovel Plus is the cheapest option, it'll reflect 50% earth but it can break in battle :/ opposite to Ultra Dual Shovel that is even better because it's multiple-use & reflects 75% of I-staff's earth icons.
- Shield: The cheapest multiple-use shield to go against this is the new Hubrid Nox Memorial Shield blocking 5 earth & physical icons. Want a cheaper alternative? Go with Faerie Tabard or Ghostker Shield the first blocks 5 physical & 3 earth icons & the second one blocks 5 earth & 5 physical. Oh, wait, is your budge low? Then just get one of the loyal Leaf Shield that blocks 5 earth & 3 physical.
This is pretty, powerful & is blessed by Illusen, What else could you ask for?! It's one of the best weapons in the game in my opinion. Better start earning np's to buy one.
